Well, here we go. Google has recently announced that they are officially changing over to paid advertising. Businesses will no longer be able to list their products for free. They hope to have these changes in effect by the Fall, 2012. It’s a sad, sad time for the little guy. This may not have as much impact on the bigger stores, but for us little people, it will definitely hurt! We can only hope to experiment with different methods of promoting our little “mom and pop store”.
